Stress???... Oh, Yes!!!...

by JoAnn
(California)

I am one the only girl out of 3 children and the only one doing anything. My younger brother passed a couple years ago and my older one hasn't spoken with our Mom for over 20 years (a long story...she definitely was the reason...but 20 years???..come on).


I was a divorced mother of 1 daughter who I lost about a year ago (to Diabetes 1). In spite of my own struggles and losses, my older brother remains distant, not just geographically, but emotionally & is of no help. I haven't asked him for help/input because I just couldn't stand the excuses/anger/resentment...etc.

Am I resentful of him?...you bet I am...but I can't let it get in the way of what I HAVE to do...

My wife and I are caring for her mother. We have been rotating days now for several months. These forums have helped me a great deal because I don't feel so alone with the many varied feelings that I have on a daily basis.
